Rema Tip Top to Consolidate Global Conveyor Belt Business


Rema Tip Top is one of the world’s major suppliers of conveyor belts with a total of five plants in South Africa, France, Poland and China. “Until now, all our brands have operated separately by market. By moving closer together and better taking advantage of the synergies in our company, we will be able to considerably increase our market share,” said Udo Zimmer, CEO of Rema Tip Top AG.

“We are mainly looking at the growth regions of Southeast Asia, Australia and Latin America,” said Stefan Flohr, head of belting business Unit at Rema Tip Top. The company plans on significantly expanding its presence there.

“Our greatest advantage is our global service network, which allows us to offer our customers comprehensive services on the basis of the appropriate conveyor belt, ranging from installation through to maintenance and monitoring,” said Flohr. “When it comes to the Rema Tip Top complete range of wear protection, conveyance technology, and components for the preparation of raw minerals, customers can place the efficiency of their entire system in our hands and know that we will come through for them.”

In keeping with the Rema Tip Top philosophy, every system is subjected to a holistic approach in order to optimize the added value for the operator and minimize overall costs. By appointing Flohr, Rema Tip Top is placing an experienced conveyor belt expert at the head of the new unit.

Over the past few months, Rema Tip Top has already taken steps to enhance its competitiveness on the conveyor belt market. The company opened a central conveyor belt logistics center for all of Europe at the beginning of 2017 in the Dutch city of Arnhem. It serves as a pivotal point and hub within the company for flexibly and quickly delivering conveyor belts from factories throughout Europe.

When it comes to belt production, Rema Tip Top focuses on producing technical and high-strength belts, with high tensile strength, low abrasion and high heat resistance. The company produces high-quality conveyor belts especially for the mine, steel, cement, quarry, gravel, sand, food, agrarian, packaging and logistics industries. Rema Tip Top also produces sidewall conveyor belts for moving bulk goods up steep inclines.
